Stewart Is Conquest
Jono. (Hokitika) - March 10th 2019
I bought the Hiko Conquest for a kayak circumnavigation of Stewart Is and it performed well. With the hood cinched down, the jacket zipped up and the pit zips closed, the jacket was warm and secure. When things warmed up I could open everything up to prevent over-heating and not feel like I had to stop and take the jacket off. The neck seal arrangement is well thought out and although not as water-tight as a full rubber or neoprene gasket it keeps most of the water out (tested with a role in the surf at West Ruggedy beach). Overall a well designed, good quality product.
